Hi loves! I’m so excited about today’s post. Have you watched the Netflix show Stranger Things? I am obsessed! Well Painted Polish made my dreams come true and released a duo polish set inspired by the show!

Painted Polish is a new-to-me indie brand that is 5 FREE, cruelty free, and made in the USA.

When I saw this duo it was instantly a must-have for me. I honestly wish Lexi (the creator of Painted Polish) would release a collection of 8 polishes all named after each episode from Season 1. If you haven’t watched Stranger Things I highly recommend you get your booty on over to the couch and turn on your Netflix!! It’s such a good show in so many ways. I can not wait until they release Season 2 (hopefully in 2017!) Meanwhile let’s take a look at this duo that I’m in love with.

THE UPSIDE DOWN

This is black base filled with multi-shaped hex ruby red glitter. It’s thick but super manageable and opaque in 2 coats. This dries down a bit dull so you will need about 2 coats of a glossy top coat to keep it glossy.

This beauty looks different depending on the lighting so I took some photos of it indoors and outdoors. I did a side by side comparison and I feel like it looks best outdoors under shade.

The glitter is amazing and you can really see it’s depth when you apply a good matte top coat. Look at that dimension!!!

MONSTER ON MIRKWOOD

This is magenta base filled with scattered holo, black holo glitter, and aqua shimmer. It’s stunning!!! I did 3 coats here for full opacity. It also dries flat so bring out the glossy top coat again.

The glitter in this is intense! Beware of the Demagorgon!
